7 Summer Paper Craft Tutorials


One of my favourite things about this time of year is there's so many long weekends! Here in the UK we've had quite a few in that last couple of months, which i'm definitely not complaining about as i'm a huge fan of switching of that 6am alarm.
The slight challenge here is the weather never seems to quite get the same memo and the visions of spending a Monday lunchtime in a sunny park or beer garden is often more Instagram than reality.

So with a three day weekend ahead, i've pulled together a list some of my favourite summery DIY craft tutorials for you to have at the ready come rain or shine! Enjoy!

1. Bring some paper blooms to your home with this gorgeous crepe paper flower tutorial from A Beautiful Mess - i'd switch out the pinks for some bright yellow sunflowers as i'm having a yellow crush!

2. If you're more of a cactus person than florals (me!) there's a great video tutorial from Good to Know where you can make these 3D cacti which are so bright and fun. The tutorial is so easy to follow too which is always a bonus!

3. Just in case you haven't already got enough notebooks, there's a great tutorial over at I SPY DIY to make your own gold leaf notebooks. Metallics are definitely a favourite on stationery and this is such a simple way to transform one of those notebooks you've got laying around...

4. If you're going to be sending cards or letters, no doubt you'll have spent time choosing the card, so why choose a plain white envelope when you can make yourself a supply of these bright string-tie envelopes? I love this tutorial from Minieco

5. Is there anything more colourful in the sky than seeing hot air balloons, this could be a mobile or a garland and is another creative tutorial from Happiness is Homemade

6. With the mixed weather we definitely see a lot of rainbows and one of the recent craft tutorials at The House that Lars Built is this beautiful tissue paper rainbow! Incredible!

Hope you have a great weekend!
